Band Booster Information
Who are the Band Boosters?
We are a group of parents, individuals, organizations, industries, etc. who are interested in the promotion of the East Gaston High School band. We assist the band director by providing transportation to and from events, funds for instruments, uniforms, chaperones and other needs as requested.
We meet on the first Thursday of every month in the band room or common area at East Gaston. All parents are always encouraged to attend.
Why so Many Fund Raisers?
Fund raisers help to off set the expenses of the band.Currently, the band uniforms are 10 years old and most of the large school owned instruments are quite old and dented. We receive very little support from the school or school board so in order to provide these items for the band, we must raise the funds elsewhere.
How Can I Help?
There are many, many ways for folks to be involved with the boosters. The boosters feed the students at nearly all performances and band events, so food donations are always welcome. Financial gifts are tax deductible and greatly needed. Chaperones, bus drivers, equipment haulers, fund raisers and uniform menders are just a few of the other jobs available.

Band Bucks Program Guidelines
The Band Bucks program is designed to give students the opportunity to earn money that can be applied toward their band fees, uniform supplies, trips and other items offered for sale by the Band Boosters.
For group participation events, each person participating counts as ‘1’ so students with multiple family members participating will receive more than those with only one participant. In cases where partial time is worked, it shall be at the discretion of the fundraiser chairman to determine the amount to be credited in proportion to the amount of time worked.
Band Bucks will be totally maintained by the Band Boosters. No actual money will ever be given directly to the student. Students may request money to be allocated for certain items using the attached request form.
Sectional type fundraisers are not eligible to earn Band Bucks. These types of fundraisers will be used entirely to fund special sectional expenses such as guard equipment, drum line equipment, special sectional trips, etc.
Since band fees must be paid before band camp, rising band members will be given the opportunity to participate in fundraisers before they actually join the marching band. Returning band members will have the opportunity to carry Band Bucks from year to year in order to pay for the upcoming year’s band fees or other expenses. If there is no Band Bucks balance for the student, the band fee must be paid out of pocket with no refunds, even if excess Band Bucks are earned.
Students receiving scholarships for band fees are expected to participate in fundraisers to help maintain the scholarship program for future students.
Active students may use their Band Bucks to help another student pay for band expenses, but only after written parental permission is given by the donor student’s parents.
All money remaining in a Bank Bucks account shall be forfeited should a student quit the band. All forfeited Band Bucks become the property of the Boosters and will be transferred into the general budget.
Graduating students have the option to (1) purchase Booster sales items, (2) transfer their balance to the scholarship fund and/or (3) transfer their balance to the general budget to be allocated as deemed appropriate by the Booster Board members.
Band Bucks should be maintained in a separate savings or checking account in order to aid in accurate accounting of Band Buck balances.
It shall be the duty of the Band Boosters Treasurer and the Band Buck Coordinator to maintain the Band Buck balance for all students.
Amounts to be credited per student per fund raiser should be tracked by the particular fund raiser chairman with totals given to the Treasurer at the conclusion of the fund raiser or at predetermined intervals for on-going fund raisers.
At least once per quarter, the Treasurer and Coordinator should give students a report of their Band Buck balance. This could be accomplished either by individual report to each student or posted somewhere in the band room.
Students may also deposit their own money into their Band Bucks account to aid in long-term savings for band expenses.
General donations received directly by the band are not eligible to be credited to any Band Bucks account.
This program will be reviewed yearly for approval and continuance.
